Former Texas GOP Chair Says Immigration Reform Will Lead to "End Times"

Cathie Adams, the chair of the Republican Party of Texas from 2009-2010, told a right-wing radio show that the biometrical scanning identification system in the Senate's immigration reform bill will lead to "end times."

Adams claimed that the bill would give amnesty to individuals from Muslim countries who she described as lacking the "best intentions" for America, i.e. she thinks Muslim and Muslim-adjacent immigrants are all terrorists.

She also claimed that immigration reform would somehow leave all of us with a 666 on our skin, aka "the mark of the beast." The former Texas GOP Chair stated:

"That is going to be the brand either on our foreheads or on the back of our hands. That is demonic through and through. That is End Times prophecy. There is no question about that."

Adams also said that immigrants from Hindu and Buddhist countries would try to implement "sharia law," which makes me wonder anew if the entire Texas GOP is just one long performance art piece about the rise of unchecked ignorance in America.

Listen to the interview with Adams below the jump.

Listen to all of Adams' interview here, thanks to Right Wing Watch:

Adams, who was appointed by the Republican State Executive Committee at a meeting in 2009, was eventually unseated by current GOP Chair Steve Munisteri in 2010. Adams also used to be the director of a crisis pregnancy center in Dallas.

Adams' anti-Muslim fervor extends past immigrants to anyone who might possibly consort with folks who practice this peaceful religion. As HuffPo reports:

Immigration reform isn't the only target that Adams has hit with her controversial religious attacks. In May, she criticized anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, suggesting that the conservative was "showing signs of converting to Islam himself" because he had a beard. Norquist is married to a Muslim woman.

Good to know Cathie Adams is such a staunch opponent of the 1st Amendment.  To appropriate a line from "The Simpsons," religious freedom for some, tiny American flags for others!
